Daisies

Here’s a new 35mm color print of one of the most inventive and anarchic works of the Czech New Wave—a dada movie that will leave you gaga! (Czech officials banned it for a year.) It’s a madcap satire that follows two bored young women as they prank and otherwise stick it to modern consumer society—thumbing their noses at food, fashion, men, and politics. "Five stars (highest rating)...This Molotov cocktail of fizzy champagne and feminist theory has not lost any of its combustible carbonation." –Time Out New York. Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles.

These screenings are dedicated to the memory of Amos Vogel (1921-2012), who founded the legendary NYC film club Cinema 16 in 1947 and co-founded the New York Film Festival in 1963. In his classic 1974 book Film as a Subversive Art, Vogel called Daisies “perhaps the most sensational film of the Czech film renaissance…An orgy of spectacular visual delights, sensuous décor, and magnificent colour experiments…No work from the East has ever been further removed from the drab sterility of so-called ‘socialist realism.’”
